I’d like to present a few daily records of events and thoughts made by Sir Winston Churchill in August 1942. It could be entitled as
“Moscow. The First Meeting.”
Churchill was keeping a diary during the years of war and not only. Later these notes, telegrams and his reminiscences were used by him for writing the memoirs and few volumes of ‘World War II’. In 1953 Churchill was awarded by Nobel Foundation for the outstanding achievements in literature..
August 4, 1942 (a telegram)

…..“We plan to leave the place for to come to Moscow next day with a stay in Teheran.”

Politics without intrigues.
As a politician he wasn’t cruel and didn’t like cruelty. He even didn’t want to try to hurt a person in opposition to his viewing. And his generosity helped him from their hate. From time to time he suffered with the mood changes but neither these, not an anger didn’t power him.
In the whole world he is known as a man who’d stopped two dictators.
